Metaboflow & Cambridge Metabolomics
Mon 24 April 2017, 13:30 – 18:00 BST
Metaboflow is a Wellcome Trust funded initiative to develop new Galaxy workflow tools for metabolomics and lipidomics. As part of the kick-off activities for this grant we have organised an afternoon of metabolomics to showcase research in the Cambridge area and also to discuss the tools and resources we plan to bring to the community through metaboflow. In addition we will discuss standardisation of workflows for metabolomics and how labs can share data to increase the adoption of metabolomics in systems biology, functional genomics and medicine.
